Where I stayed
Once we arrived at Hatshepsut’s temple I knew it was going to be very crowded much like Karnak the previous day. The temple is an amazing and beautiful structure carved out of the mountainside.
Our next stop was the Valley of the Kings which is the site of 64 tombs, possibly more since they are stiexcavatinging. We took a shotrolleylly ride up into the valley and our guide explained the history behind the valley and the specific tombs that we would be entering. We went into three tombs, all in the Ramses line. Each tomb was very crowded, but there were organized lines in and out of each tomb. It was difficult completelytly appreciate where you were and what you were seeing because of the crowds. We were not allowed to take any photos in the valley, inside or outside of the tombs.
After leaving the Valley of the Kings we headed back to our ferry and crossed the Nile. After docking we decided to walk around awhile and go get something to eat. We actually ended up atMcDonald'slds and I have to say it was delicious!
